What users can and can't do using the API Our API is RESTful, it is encrypted with an SSL TLS 1.2 SHA256 with RSA and secured using token based authentication, which the user (requester) can request using a valid username and API key within a GET request. The token will remain valid for 180 minutes after which a new token will need to be requested.

The API allows access to journey information, enabling the requester to GET and/or POST journey details and timestamps. The requester will not be able to Get any patient identifiable data, DELETE journey data or ACCESS the API without an authenticated token.
API documentation Yes

Customisation available Yes
Description of customisation Users with authority to customise (as determined by their security settings) can fully configure our service by setting up their own values in the system fields. Users can create tailored lists of options to allow for entry of bespoke user-specific terminology, enabling the application to be customised to their business sector.

For example, users can customise the values provided in drop-down menus with the contracts they have, the services they provide, the bases they operate from etc. Within certain areas of the system, the user can setup user defined fields which allow the label, data type and validation of the new field to be configured. Users can also set up customised logos and welcome messages.
